In light of several assaults that allegedly occurred near McGolrick park recently, a community meeting was held Thursday night at the Park Church Co-Op (129 Russell St.) Concerned citizens asked questions of several attending officers of the 94th Precinct and then brainstormed ways to make the community safer. Greenpointers attended the meeting and we will have an update coming soon!

Uh yeah, the same way everyone thought it was totally cool and chill to drop live crickets all over a crowded D train, it’s even more hilarious to yell “BOMB” on a packed L train, count down from five and then yell “BOOM!”. Police are now looking for the guy who did it, presumably to present him with the Underground Comedian Of The Year award. Or arrest him.

Things got heated this week at a Department of City Planning meeting. Protesters got rowdy and loud about rezoning a Williamsburg/Bushwick/Bed-Stuy bordering plot of land for a proposed housing development that would “contain a mix of retail, green space, and market rate housing,” and their opposition brought the meeting to a halt.
Sadly it’s not exactly shocking news that 216 plastic bags of “goo” were found in Newtown Creek recently.
